    Wasn't Cherokee, Clay and Graham County part of Buncombe in the 1820s?

    The 25th was primarily a mountaineers of western NC regiment and we have a Cane Creek here in Jackson County - although western NC has no shortage of Cane Creeks.

    I'm not sure about the 1820s but Clay County was formed (1861)primarily from Cherokee County, however, a small area was taken from Macon County 1861.

    Graham County was formed January 30, 1872, from the northeastern part of Cherokee County.

    Cherokee County is where both my paternal and maternal roots are. There and neighboring Monroe County TN and Union County GA.
